Day 3 - Families

One of the central features of any Eid al Adha celebration is family. Like Thanksgiving in the United States, Eid al Adha is a time with extended families gather to honor the religious traditions of the holiday but to do that together. Adult children routinely come home if they’ve moved away. The women work together to create great meals. The men sip tea and catch up on one another’s lives. The cousins play and play and play.

Throughout the scriptures God engages with whole families: Noah and his whole family get on the Ark; Abraham is promised a growing family; Jesus is born into a family, Lydia, the Phillipian jailer, Cornelius, Crispus the synagogue ruler and their whole households are saved. Some have said that when an individual comes to faith you have the beginnings of a disciple but when a whole family comes to faith – as is so often the case in the book of Acts – you have the beginnings of a church.


Prayer Points

  • Pray for travel safety as many Muslims travel home to be with family in the next few days.
  • Pray for God to bless whole families with the knowledge of the truth of Christ.
  • Pray for new churches to spring out of family networks all across this country.

The next day Peter started out with them, and some of the believers from Joppa went along. The following day he arrived in Caesarea. Cornelius was expecting them and had called together his relatives and close friends.
